|Quilts at the Station
Wikipedia says "Quilting is a sewing method done to join two or more layers of material together to make a thicker padded material."
Those of us who live in Alberta know that quilting is certainly more than that. It's a culture that has been embraced for hundreds of years. Quilting bees bring friends and neighbours together to visit, spend time together, and share in their love of quilting.
Quilting is an art the Mountain View Arts Festival embraced at its first festival, and was expanded as a full-fledged Quilt Show, simply because that's what everyone wanted! You won't want to miss this fabulous show in 2017!
